Email from Microsoft a few weeks ago – Pre-Order your Surface for delivery BY 26th October they said. In the interests of testing and comparing the iPad3 we bought in July with something new, I thought I would pre-order and get one before the crowds.
Couple of confusing emails later and checks on the order, seems that pre-order means something completely different to #Microsoft. The #surface won’t be delivered until 2nd November. An email yesterday with apologies and a voucher for £50 to cover our disappointment, that should wipe out their margins on the surface. No doubt they will soon recoup it when we start purchasing the apps that are yet to be developed for the #surface.
Still looking forward to playing with it and comparing it’s use against iPad, particularly for work.
